Product Description

Amazon.com

"Micom" means this sleek rice cooker is computer-controlled and ultra high-tech, from its spherical, nonstick pan to its "surround heating" system to its LCD clock and timer. (Program the cooker in the morning and have hot rice available immediately after work.) It not only cooks up to 3 cups of dry rice, but offers a choice of white/brown, mixed, sweet, and porridge settings. A quick-cooking option cuts time by 10 minutes. Rice is automatically kept at warm for hours, and a reheat feature brings it back to serving temperature. Instructions and a cooking chart explain everything. At 10-3/4 by 8-1/2 by 8 inches, it's remarkably compact and also lightweight. Transport it by its handle. Cord retracts for storage. --Fred Brack

Product Description

The Zojirushi NS-KCC05 Micom rice cooker works via a computerized technology to produce perfectly cooked white, brown and mixed rice plus porridge. The quick cooking cycle reduces cooking time as much as 10 minute - perfect for last minute meals! And if your rice is ready before you're ready to serve, there's an automatic Keep Warm cycle that re-heats rice to the perfect serving temperature. Menu includes settings for regular, mixed, sweet, and brown rice plus porridge. The inner cooking pot has a durable nonstick coating so clean up is quick and easy. Features LCD clock and timer. Comes with 12 easy-to-follow recipes. Note: Although you can use this cooker to prepare brown rice, an additional step is involved. You must first soak the brown rice in water before cooking, at least four hours or overnight for best results.

This rice cooker is our favorite thing in the kitchen.
Joanna Daneman
It's a perfect size for a single person or two people, for families bigger than that I'd say skip this one and move onto a 5 cup cooker.
Lord Jezo
It always makes perfect white rice, brown rice, wild rice or jambalaya.

How many appliances and kitchen devices claim they will streamline preparation, enhance foods and recipes, be easy to clean, even to be so darn wonderful that you'd want to start a catering business just so you could use the product all the time? Well, I don't know about the catering business, but this cooker is the best of the best kitchen appliance, device, tool, anything having to do with cooking. At my house, it's used every day.
Construction is what you'd expect from this price: thoughtfully designed, quality materials, quality fit and finish, well put together, and the retractable cord is great. If you can operate a toaster you can operate this (and the learning curve is about the same too). There's no setup and ease of use couldn't be easier or more foolproof. Many appliances and kitchen devices I've bought over the years didn't become part of my cooking routine because often they were too tedious to clean up after, but there has never been an appliance or kitchen devise nearly as easy to clean up after than this. It takes about 5 - 10 seconds.
This cooker is great for making complete meals - as well as rice, porridge or rice soup. The recipe booklet only has 12 recipes, but it demonstrates the diversity that's limited only by your creativity. Some examples from the booklet are: Jambalaya, Wild Rice with Mushrooms, Curry Flavored Rice, Vegetable Rice, Adzuki Bean Rice, Creamy Grits. This cooker is very forgiving, rice is always perfect. Most of the rice I cook with is organic, I've used this cooker for: Wild Rice, Black Japonica, Wehani, Brown, numerous types of jasmine and basmati. For variety I've added vegetables, several types of lentils, green or yellow split peas to various rice dishes and they've all come out perfectly.

Yes, you can make rice on the stove. No, it doesn't come out as good. This rice cooker is our favorite thing in the kitchen. Not only does it make delicious rice, you can make breakfast porridge and soup. It keeps the rice warm, it can be set in advance to have it ready when you come home from work. Since one of us at home can't eat wheat products, rice is our staple and we keep this thing busy all the time.
Some of our friends were not familiar with rice cookers, and they kept inviting themselves over for dinner every week and asking for rice. They'd eat the entire batch. It was really funny. (We also use a Thai blend of Jasmine rice from our grocery store that is especially moist and delicious.)
This model has a "fuzzy logic" chip to sense when the rice is nearing done-ness. It comes out perfectly as a result.

Earlier this year, I bought the 10 cup fuzzy logic Zojirushi rice cooker, along with the Ultimate Rice Cooker cookbook, which has some fantastic recipes in it. I still love this cooker and have made all kinds of things in it - brown rice, white rice, risotto, polenta, oatmeal, even chicken chili. It really is a versatile appliance, but it tends to cook quantities of at least 2 cups of dry rice best.

I had started to use the timer function quite a lot - just stick the rice and water or other ingredients in the pot in the morning and set it to be ready and perfect at a designated time. It was great to come home and have the rice ready - all I had to do was throw together a quick stirfry or reheat leftover curry, something like that. Saves so much prep and waiting time.

I bought this cooker because I wanted to be able to cook much smaller amounts of rice without having leftovers. I have cooked as little as 1/4 cup rice in the cooker and it came out perfectly! Obviously it handles larger amounts too, but if I'm cooking for 4 or more people I tend to use the 10 cup cooker.

If you're debating whether or not this is a good purchase or if it will be sitting in the cupboard forevermore, I can tell you that I use mine all of the time, and use it at least 3 times a week. Don't forget that it cooks much more than just rice, and there are all kinds of creative dishes you can make. For ideas on that, I really recommend the Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook.

I hope this review is helpful.

Verified Purchase
This is NOT intended as a full review of this machine; I have only owned it for one day and obviously cannot comment on reliability and many other important issues.
The only reason I decided to post this is that I almost did not buy this rice cooker because of some comments that are present repeatedly in earlier reviews, which are perhaps either overstated or not applicable to many potential buyers.
One common complaint is that the rice maker won't make enough rice and you need a larger one. This depends entirely on your circumstances. I am an athletic 50 year old male and eat a huge amount of food for dinner each evening. The most dried rice product (e.g. when cooked) I could conceivably ever eat is 1.25 to 1.5 cups, the cooked result of which is obviously much larger. Two very hungry adults would have trouble consuming all the rice this thing can make in one sitting. And why would you use the rice for leftovers if making rice in a rice cooker is so easy and the rice itself is dirt cheap? I used a similarly sized (but very basic) 3-cup National (Panasonic) rice cooker for about 10 years and never used close to the capacity of that cooker. So, for 1 or 2 people this thing makes a fully sufficient quantity, however for a family you would probably want a larger model.
As to quality of the rice produced, there is no comparison between what this Zojirushi makes and what I get out of the Panasonic. The Panasonic produces dry rice that is burned at the bottom. This cooker, the Zojirushi, produces moist rice in easily separated grains that are not burned at all, anywhere. I found the timing function to be convenient.
Other reviewers have stated that this model has fuzzy logic; I don't think that is correct.
